Hello! My name is Allison, and my sugarcat is Rocky, age 11 years, neutered male. I also have a non-diabetic female, Enya, age 10. She was not happy when Rocky appeared in our house three months ago but she has slowly accepted his existence in her general area. Rocky, bless his dumb little heart, is totally chill with whatever cat is around, or maybe just does not notice them. He does have cataracts and honestly I think he's a little "slow" for a cat lol. We started fostering Rocky in December 2015, and shortly after he was diagnosed with diabetes. We did our best to learn and manage it, and my sister took ownership of him in summer 2016. I didn't have much to do with his care after that until Sept 2019. I took him in at my house then and have been relearning how to best treat him. I noticed right away that he was peeing buckets and draining his water bowl, but thought he was still regulated okay at least. In November I reordered strips for the AlphaTrak meter we bought in 2016 (they're so expensive!) and did a full curve on him. Saw that his sugar was way too high. Since then I've found this site and have been adjusting his care. I stopped kibble, and bought LC canned food that was also low phosphorous so my other kitty can share - she has a history of crystals. I started checking his blood sugar much more often. As I continue to learn, hopefully we'll get him where he needs to be! I haven't yet learned about using human glucose meters but I want to switch when my AlphaTrak strips run out. I can't believe they charge so much for those.
